You know this kind of stuff... a place where a developer could add their to-dos and comments to the code... when you write a particular keyword in a comment, WingIDE recognizes it and add the phrase to the task list... nowadays it's becoming a quite common feature in many IDEs.

I'm pretty sure there are a lot of people that bother to ask features over features just like me... you cannot always make everyone happy;-)

You can also narrow the search here to only Python files if that's appropriate for your code.  You can create multiple instances of the Search in Files tool by right clicking on the tool tabs.

Thank you for this tip, I'll use it from now on

>> Ah, another question if you please... do you have a webpage where the people can ask you for features without clogging this mailing-list? Something like uservoice.com where you could post features request, vote for them and someone reply to the inquiries telling "yes, this is a reasonable request" or "No, this is plain silly" ?:)

The issue w/ a public tracker is that we have to maintain it more carefully than we do with our private tracker and it's too easy for people to fake votes for features. Keeping it private and more personal by email gives us a better idea of what is actually wanted.  It also lets us respond with suggestions, such as the above work-around.

Point taken ;-)


Well, thank you very much for the quick reply
